The 8th Fidelio Trio WCMF: Beethoven250
Premiered Nov 29, 2020
The composer who penned the four most recognisable notes in the history of music. A true artist: dishevelled, volatile and unlucky in love – but a great believer in humanity. A genius who wrote some of his greatest works after he lost his hearing.
To commemorate the 250th anniversary year of Beethoven’s birth, we would like to share the opening movement from a pinnacle of the piano trio literature ‘Archduke’, alongside a new commission commemorating 25th anniversary of the tragic and untimely death of Spencer Boney, founding pianist of the Fidelio Trio.
Moeran & McKay (with Fidelio Trio & Philippa Mo)
Premiered Aug 14, 2020
Members of The Fidelio Trio, joined by violinist Philippa Mo, explore music by our patron composer, Ernest Moeran, marking the 70th anniversary of his death in 1950 and, true to the Festival’s mission and tradition, focus on a living Irish composer, this year Deirdre McKay.
The programme encompasses some of Moeran’s most evocative chamber music and the exquisite soundworlds McKay constructs from minimal sources and materials.
